Adams to keep Vale grounded

Published Add your comment

Port Vale boss Micky Adams is refusing to get carried away despite his side breaking into the League Two play-off places.

Vale are up to seventh with two matches remaining following a 2-1 home win over already-promoted Notts County.

"We are now up there to be shot at and we've got to make sure we don't get carried away," said Adams. "We've got the momentum with us, which can be a good thing, but there is still a lot of work to do and we must keep it going."

He added: "The team is playing at their maximum and we've got to make sure the players stay at that level. If they can achieve that, we've got a very good chance of extending our season."

"Not many people gave us a prayer against a very good Notts County side. They've got some excellent players and still look the most likely champions.

"But inside our dressing room we felt we might just have a chance if we could catch them on an off day. I told the players I wanted a white hot performance, not red hot, and they didn't let me down."
